Supplies for Pom-Pom Balloons Helium grade latex balloons - I used clear as I liked being able to look through the balloon and see the pom-poms on the other side, but you could try any color Small pom-poms - I found some fun glitter pom-poms Hot glue - I used it on "low" setting just to be safe!
How to make party pom-poms - About 60 years ago my Mom showed me how to make these with regular tissues and hold it together with a bobby pin. When we finished we would take one of her lipsticks and "very" gently touch the edges to give them some color. Oh what fond and happy memories! :)
1. Stack eight 20-by-30-inch sheets of tissue. Make 1 1/2-inchwide accordion folds, creasing with each fold. 2. Fold an 18-inch piece of floral wire in half, and slip over center of folded tissue; twist. With scissors, trim ends of tissue into rounded or pointy shapes. 3. Separate layers, pulling away from center one at a time. 4. Tie a length of monofilament to floral wire for hanging.
